Are you undergoing knee ligament treatment? Is it related to an accident or conditions in the workplace? If it is you may be entitled to claim financial compensation and we here at Accident Advice Helpline can assist.
Ligaments are pieces of tough, elastic connective tissue that encompass a joint in order to offer support and control the movement of that joint. When knee ligaments get damaged, the knee joint will probably become unstable. Ligament damage often happens as the result of a sports injury. But in can happen in other circumstances too, like in the workplace.
A torn ligament severely limits the movement of the knee resulting in the victim’s inability to turn and twist his/her leg. Victims who cannot go back to doing normal activities with medical treatment may have to have the ligament repaired or reconstructed by means of a surgical procedure.
Knee ligament treatments for injuries in the workplace
This sort of injury can easily happen in the workplace when employees undertake manual handling tasks. These tasks should in theory all be risk assessed by the employer before employees are expected to carry them out. However, during the normal working day, events constantly arise with circumstances slightly different to those encountered before, and this can easily lead to an injury that requires knee ligament treatment.
When employees are injured through no fault of their own in the workplace, the employer is held accountable and in these types of instances that employer can be sued for financial compensation. The amount of compensation that might be forthcoming varies according to the nature and severity of the injury. However injury victims can get an approximation of how much compensation they could be owed by taking the 30-second test here on the Accident Advice Helpline website.
Estimating the value of your claim through Accident Advice Helpline
This short test will estimate the amount of compensation regarding the injury itself. It will not take into account any loss of earnings that may be enforced on the victim, or things like the cost of travelling to hospitals or clinics to carry out any necessary physiotherapy. These types of additional costs would normally be negotiated separately by the injury claim solicitor allocated to your case.
